Where Does Your Dust Go?

By Harry S. Guensche Posted: 02/18/2013 3:19PM

Tooling development has made major steps forward in the last 25 years. Manufacturers have come up with sophisticated tool design and cutting materials, as well as improved quality and reliability of tools. These developments greatly expanded options for manufacturers in their choice of workpiece materials; noise levels could be reduced and tool performance was pushed. Tooling producers even researched peripheral areas such as the interface to the machine, which brought new tool holders (e.g. HSK tool holder and hydro sleeves) and spindle designs with accuracy and efficiency never seen before (high precision HF spindle). In their effort to optimize tooling performance, R&D departments widened research beyond the tool to include teams comprised of universities, machine manufacturers, raw material producers and tool users to find solutions for very complex problems like dust extraction.
